4.5 stars! Wow this book was so atmospheric and definitely gives major The VVitch vibes which is one of my all time favorite horror movies! I really got wrapped up in the atmosphere of this novel and loved the writing style! The illustrations in the middle of the book were breathtaking and super helpful for visualizing the different creatures. My only complaint is that I think the store was a tad bit too long.

This book was a great and BEAUTIFUL example of a revenge story. I love it the whole anger but satisfaction at the end. chief's kiss!

This is a 'cosy' historical horror that follows a widowed woman during the times were women do not have voices and she makes her way to give those who wronged her bloody hell.

I listened to the audiobook voiced by Barrie Kreinik, she did a great job at voicing the characters. She did an amazing job on varying her voice with different characters so it was easy to follow. I will buy the physical copy because it has beautiful illustrations by the author himself.

what I like:
  • the writing beautifully described the the world, the characters and the creatures beautifully.
  • the satisfaction at the end of the were those horrid people got what they want...beautiful. I love the violent descriptions.
  • the trials, the history of 1666 and the fear of everyone, including women, was greatly written and provided a good understanding into thar time era, including me being more and more curious of that time era and witches.

what I dislike:
  • the beginning was a bit slow for me, though it is understandable as it gives you context to everything in the town, the people and the forest folk.
